01/12/22 Cleaning Out the Sports Junk Drawer

I think that I shall never see, a more disappointing Coaching Tree.

You’re limping into the playoffs! You are! You are!

Jon Lester should have been a Red Sock for life. There: I said it.

With friends like Antonio Brown, right?

To be fair to Nic Dowd, Marchand’s face is mostly nose.

The last time I try to contribute to the morning email chain outside my lane. Totally my fault. I do a million things on Tuesday mornings, came up on my Twitter feed, passed it along. I ran a lap.

Maybe don’t break up the Celtics roster?

Tony Dungy and Jeff Fisher could have colluded their way to a tie game, caller!

First NBC 80’s sitcom star Betty White, then ABC 80’s sitcom star Bob Saget. All I can say is be careful, CBS’s Kate &/or Allie!

Cakes are cooking for Kirstie Alley, Rockne S. O’Bannon, Jeff Bezos, Raekwon, Scott Burrell, Melanie Chisholm, and Dontrelle Willis.

Wait, maybe Peter Scolari from Newhart was the one death from a CBS 80’s sitcom, Maybe a FOX sitcom star is next in line?

Bruins gelling offensively just in time to get veteran netminder Tuukka back? Giddyup!

Thank God for raisins.

It’s been said before but Ian Rapoport always including 2 seconds of Kay Adams at the start of these clips he retweets is genius. Otherwise I’d keep scrolling.

You know who are underappreciated in our modern society? Eversource Energy executives, that’s who.

The #Bucs designated three players currently on injured reserve to return to practice: LB Lavonte David and RBs Leonard Fournette and Giovani Bernard.

The simps will pay for the overnight.

The Little Debbie double decker Oatmeal Creme Pie is inferior to the original version.

Hey Gang of Hyperlocal Beaneaters, this week’s Phrase that Pays is, “The topic has been lightly broached over the years.”

Everyone forgets this, but Patriots center David Andrews had a famous great-uncle: Alex Karras.

Is Kool Moe Dee saying that Lauryn Hill is the Mina Kimes of rappers?

Blue Line Update: Delays of up to 15 minutes due to a maintenance vehicle being moved into the yard. It’s clear at this time.

The Sox Pax are sold out? People still think baseball will start on-time, even with the lockout.

Personally, I like having fewer head coaches on opposing teams with institutional knowledge about Bill Belichick. Seems good.

1/8/54 (Elvis’ 19th birthday). Villanova’s Bob Schaefer’s 46 vs Baldwin-Wallace breaks Palestra scoring record of 45 held by teammate Larry Hennessy. How do I know? Bobert Ryan was there.

Oh good. A Bishop Hendricken alum won a National Championship. Yay.

You could do a great sitcom, Babe and Lou, setting up the Wild and Crazy guy against the Solid Citizen. Show them interacting with other 1920s superstars, Charlie Chaplin, Big Bill Tilden, Ty Cobb, Jack Benny, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Mary Pickford, Charles Lindbergh. Could be fun.

Ok. Thanks.

What’s the point of being the #1 ranked tennis player in the world if that doesn’t afford you special treatment?

It’s almost like there’s no correlation between being having a thousand yard rusher or reciever or having players win an entirely subjective Player of the Week award, and being a playoff team.

Hanging out, down the street.
The same old thing we did last week.
Not a thing to do, but talk to you.

Steve Belichick’s dream job is to coach the Giants.

Weirdest part of that Beach Boys episode was that they not only had the time to meet with this random family hours before a concert, but that they also did it in San Francisco when their concert was clearly held at Dodger Stadium.

Maybe Bill’s Coaching Tree is a Baobab.

Play the honkies, Ime!

Whoever is reading this to Ganger tell him to get well soon.

Best bet for the weekend: media giving the fans an Adrian Balboa pep talk about NE’s chances in frigid Buffalo.

Fenway Park looks beautiful today.
